The Hilton card is already one of favourite cards to get purely for the sign-up bonus. The card has no fee, and you get a voucher for a free night at any Hilton Group property, which includes Conrad and Wald0rf-Astoria properties, when you spend just £750.
Barclaycard, who run the Hilton card, were also running this targetted offer. Not only do you get the free night, but you also get 10,000 Hilton HHonors points – worth £50 in my book – for signing up.
The deal for the extra 10,000 points on top of the free night ends on October 30th, so if you were thinking of getting the Hilton card then now is a good time.
